Easter bonnet

Hi, I hope everyone has enjoyed a lovely Easter break! It's been a quiet and peaceful weekend here...until today when my daughter, son their partners and children all came for lunch! It wasn't quiet...but it was fun! (not sure my husband thought that as he tackled the mountain of washing up!-so glad his hand is better now...:D). The girls enjoyed their Easter egg hunt in the garden, first year Emmy is big enough to join in...but she caught on very quickly and was thoroughly delighted with her bucket of choccie eggs...not quite so pleased when Mummy firmly removed all but one! They'll probably last her until Christmas!
My card today is a 'just because' card, I had some time to play yesterday and enjoyed some relaxing colouring therapy! The image is by Julia Spiri, coloured with copics, I followed a sketch from Paper Play sketches.
Thanks for visiting,
